Describing oneself is tricky. I am an unpretentious, outgoing, warm, and versatile woman. I try to be an attentive listener and good communicator. I value consideration, humor, compassion, engaging company, and I love to laugh. Music is a delight and a refuge. I like to dance, attend classical and pop concerts (depending upon the performer), opera and theater selectively and would enjoy sharing these plus life's daily activities with an intelligent partner. I enjoy hosting guests at Shabbat and holiday dinners. I've lived, loved and worked in Israel and I always look forward to being there. Being huggable is important. I am currently in Berkeley, California and will be back in NYC in April. Perhaps, we might meet for a walk.
